Abstract/Contents:"Core aerification is an effective cultivation practice utilized by most golf courses for thatch management and soil compaction reduction. Timely recovery of aerification cultural practices is an important management consideration for golf course superintendents. Quick recovery periods are preferred by course owners/greens committees to reduce loss of revenue and by golfers/members to reduce loss of fall playing time. Filling aerification holes and sand topdressing after aerification can speed recovery, but it is often still days before the playing surface is returned to optimal condition. Because the many benefits of core aeration outweigh the disruption of playing conditions, cultural practice improvements to decrease recovery time are necessary."
